problem1. Illustrate clearly, the three fundamental steps required in order for the CPU to performa prepare operation in a specified memory location.
problem2. Make a distinction between the “memory indirect” and the “indexed” addressing modes.
problem3. Name all four fields of each line of an assembly program.
problem4. The memory hierarchy can be typified by a number of parameters such as the access type, latency and bandwidth, cycle time briefly illustrate each parameter.c) problem5. Illustrate the protocol employed by the MMU (Memory Management Unit) to satisfy a request made by the processor for accessing given element.
problem6. Illustrate, in detail, what do you understand by the term virtual memory?
problem7. The Memory Management Unit is accountable for the translation of virtual addresses to their corresponding physical addresses. Name all three address translation methods which can be employed for this purpose.
